Hello, and welcome to my brand new platform!
My name is David Martin. You may remember me from the Davis Life Magazine food reviews. As much as I loved writing those reviews, my real passion is hair. And so, with this months re-boot of DLM, I will be blogging to you weekly about all things Style!
I have been a hair stylist here in Davis, working behind the chair, for over 22 years. I started at J. Cunningham & Co. in the summer of 1987. I mentored with Bunny Jean Cunningham for 4 years, and then worked at All That Jazz hair salon in South Davis for the next 15 years, owning it for the last 5. After working in downtown Davis for the next 4 years at various shops around town, I opened my own studio, Cobalt Salon & Gallery, in the Mansion Square center on E Street in February of this year.
I also achieved another of my goals over the last year, reaching out to other salons, and stylists, as a color educator with a major color manufacturer. As well as working back stage with the wonderful ISO, and JOICO styling teams at the West Coast Spring Style Show. Something of a big deal for stylists in Northern California.
With all these changes, it seems I have reached a point in my career where I might be able to offer something interesting to the style scene in this charming little college town.
Over the life of this column I hope to introduce our readers to stylists, salons, artists, art galleries, shops, and whatever else I can find to give a little push to the fashionista in us all.
So be sure to stop often to check out the latest installment. I know I’ll have something beautiful for you!
